It’s no secret that one of the reasons the United Way of Northern Arizona has such great impact is our volunteers. They give the most precious resource there is – time – when there’s a crisis, an event, or a program that needs some help.
Simply put, we wouldn’t be able to ‘Step Up for Our Youth‘ and our community without them.
We are proud to announce that we now have VolunteerHub, a digital tool for registering volunteers and notifying them when events, opportunities, or emergencies occur, such as:
- Crisis response activities
- Call Center assistance (training provided)
- Administrative help
- Events sponsored by or benefiting UWNA, like the Holiday Craft Fair at Northern Arizona University or the Holiday Lights celebration at Little America
- Summer Cafe
- Community Investment Teams, where volunteers review program applications and make recommendations for grants.
We are so grateful to our UWNA volunteers and understand their time is valuable. That’s why we’ve invested in VolunteerHub; to streamline the process, make it easy to volunteer and keep everyone informed and up-to-date.
Check out our FAQ section below for more information, and thank you again for Living United.
How does it work? Simply visit the site and register. You’ll create an account with your information and specify the type of work that interests you. In just a few minutes you’ll be registered.
I’ve already been a volunteer with UWNA in the past; do I need to register on Volunteer Hub? Yes! We are asking that all past volunteers create an account on VolunteerHub. This will ensure that we have the most current information for you and confirm that you are still interested in being a volunteer.
I have special skills. Is there a place for me to note that in the hub? Yes! There are places for you to note any special skills or licenses (contractor, counselor, nurse, physician, social worker) you might have. There’s also a spot to note any equipment you could make available (things like trucks or backhoes).
What if I can’t volunteer in the future? You can always “opt-out” of notifications from VolunteerHub if you are unable to volunteer for a period of time. Then, when you are able to volunteer again, you won’t need to re-register; just opt back in. Additionally, you can modify any of your registration information at your convenience.
I have more questions. Just email us with your questions and your phone number and we’ll give you a call.
